This World Health Day, we're exploring how to best support governments in low- and middle-income countries in achieving universal health coverage
Achieving universal health coverage (UHC) is now a leading global priority, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. We work across the policy cycle and across health financing functions to help governments transform this ambition into reality. We specialise in providing complex technical assistance to implement health financing reforms, and through our work tackle fundamental issues to support the rollout of UHC for all.
This year's World Heath Day is dedicated to highlighting progress made in achieving UHC, reflecting its connection to the health Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 3) aiming to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
